Daniele, I'm not sure what you're referring to by "calling" a variable.  In the Problem class you have full access to your custom genotype.  For example, if your gene subclass is called MyGene, you can get the sixth such gene out of an individual like this:

GeneVectorIndividual gind = (GeneVectorIndividual) ind;
MyGene myGene = (MyGene)(gind.genome[5]);
